CARAMBOLA - KARY SEEDLING
This star like fruit has five golden wings that reveal a star-shaped pattern when cut crosswise. The juicy transparent flesh has a citrus quality with a floral accent and is delicious eaten fresh, made into juice or into a delicious chutney. Seedling grown from the popular Kary selection, which we have found to begin cropping in 2-3 years.
